Cyclops Kitty Symbol of Creationism?

A while back I suggested that Cy, the Cyclops Kitty, should become the new animal mascot for atheism. The former owner got a different idea:

Famous one-eyed kitten to go on display

GRANBY, N.Y. - The one-eyed, noseless kitten that inspired an international debate last year over whether it was a hoax is coming to a new museum of oddities in central New York. The museum founder, who believes in creationism, said the kitten is meant to launch another debate about how science and religion intersect.

The Oregon woman who owned the kitten said she turned down Ripley's Believe it or Not! and sold the remains to John Adolfi of Granby because she liked his religious reasons for wanting them.

"We didn't want Cy becoming a joke or part of a personal collection," Traci Allen said. "But John was so heartfelt, you could tell he was genuine and sincere."<

Adolfi would not say how much he paid for the kitten, named Cy, for Cyclops. He said he plans to have it embalmed Wednesday at a local funeral home.

The kitten died in December, a day after being born. Veterinarians in Oregon said it suffered from a rare disorder called holoprosencephaly. Cy will be displayed in a glass jar in the Lost World Museum, which Adolfi hopes to open in nearby Phoenix this fall.

Other exhibits will include giant plants and eggs, deformed animal remains and archaeological finds, Adolfi said.

Well, anything will prove that God is an giant asshole, this will. With his freak and oddity show, he'll be sure to set creationist research way, way ahead--into the early 1930's.

Come on! Even if it's a one-eyes kitten, God loves it as much as any other creatures he created.
I mean, it could be one-eyed, but at least it's not gay, right?

If God hadn't intended for there to be gay people, He wouldn't have created Versace.

I think it's the same old story about free will.
I mean, God created Versace as a gay, but Versace had the free will to choose not to behave like gay, right?

I mean, in Guantanamo they have the same approach. They take prisoners away from bathroom for hours and than, when they urinate and defecate on themselves, they choosed to do it, right?

It's all a matter of free will.

Remember: God loves you!
(no, not you. the guy behind you)

Regards, Diego
